Weathering: New Art From East Anglia
Saturday 29 May - Saturday 10 July 2021
The Yare Gallery, 26 South Quay, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, NR30 2RG
The opening exhibition of The Yare Gallery celebrates the work of over 20 artists currently active in East Anglia, showcasing their work across painting, sculpture, textiles and ceramics.
About the event
Our opening exhibition is WEATHERING: NEW ART FROM EAST ANGLIA, featuring the work of the Yarmouth 5, artists Katarzyna Coleman, Bridget Heriz, John Kiki, Emrys Parry and Brüer Tidman plus works by other artists from across the region.
Curator Sarah Lowndes has chosen the title WEATHERING to reflect the way that the terrain and climatic conditions of East Anglia influence work made here, but also to acknowledge the resilience of artists who work in the region, ranging from those who have been active for many decades to newly emerging practitioners.
WEATHERING will celebrate several generations of artists currently active in East Anglia, showcasing the work of over 20 artists working mostly with painting, sculpture, textiles and ceramics.
